My Art at Two Rivers Gallery

I was pleased to have 3 pieces chosen for the Two Rivers Gallery ‘Flux’ show which is on here in Prince George until May. You can see one of my pieces on their website, Flux In my artist statement I talk about the work being my reaction to comparing the Christian iconography I knew as a child in the Catholic Church with Cree Medicine bundles of my aboriginal ancestors. Specifically exploring the idea that these visual ‘objects’ were thought to have incredible positive influence on the lives of those who had them, but as we move forward, not only are notions about these things changing, but the objects themselves are being represented digitally and through art. Do these 2D representations hold the same power and mystery as the originals?

    Saw your art at Flux, Kim, and really enjoyed looking at it. The pictures stand alone by themselves, purely from an aesthetic point of view, but the history and meaning contained within them make them all the more powerful for viewing.
